CSCW 2008 Workshop: **Remix rooms: Redefining the smart conference room**

November 8, 2008 - San Diego, California, USA

In this workshop we will explore how the experience of smart
conference rooms can be broadened to include different contexts and
media such as context-aware mobile systems, personal and professional
videoconferencing, virtual worlds, and social software. How should the
technologies behind conference room systems reflect the rapidly
changing expectations around personal devices and social online spaces
like Facebook, Twitter, and Second Life? What kinds of systems are
needed to support meetings in technologically complex environments?
How can a mashup of conference room spaces and technologies account
for differing social and cultural practices around meetings? What
requirements are imposed by security and privacy issues in public and
semi-public spaces?

Selection of workshop participants and presentations will be based on
refereed submissions. Authors are invited to submit a 1-2 page
position statement describing their interest, experience or ongoing
research in the field, and including a brief biography. Position
statements should have only one author, and admission to the workshop
will be for that person only. Position statements should be sent
directly to [log in to unmask] and will be published on the website. We
would like to cap the workshop at about 20 participants (including
organizers). The depth of response to previous related workshops
reveals considerable continued interest in the topic, and we believe
that entry will be competitive.
